The Village Against the World - now in paperback!


Marinaleda, in impoverished Andalusia, used to suffer terrible hardships. Led by a charismatic mayor, the village declared itself a communist utopia and took farmland to provide for everyone. Could it be the answer to modern capitalism's failings?

“Lively and genuinely inspiring” – David Edgar, Guardian

“As the borderline between dream and reality shimmers in the heat of Andalucia, we begin to wonder if living as if change were indeed possible is the very key to making actual change happen.” – Suzanne Moore, Guardian

“A thoughtful, take-nothing-for-granted account ... this engaging book is as much a study of idealism in practice as it is of life in a highly unusualpueblo. The respectful, intelligent writing places the villagers at the centre of their own story – and that story is fascinating.” – New Statesman

“Hancox’s book could not be more timely - with Spain on the brink of social crisis and the shadows of the past emerging.” – Paul Mason, author of Why It’s Still Kicking Off Everywhere
